Women's Health Services
HMH has a nursing unit exclusively for female patients. The Women's
Health Services (WHS) unit is located on the second floor of Huntsville
Memorial Hospital and features birthing suites, a nursery and gynecology
surgery recovery areas. The unit is segregated from the rest of the hospital
and is dedicated to serving the women of the community. Specifically designed
for obstetrical and gynecology surgical recovery, the WHS unit is staffed
with professionals who deal with the medical and educational needs of
female surgery. After surgery, patients staying in the hospital are moved
to a room in the Women's Unit, where their specialized care continues.
The Women's Health Services (WHS) unit features five private birthing
suites, where mothers can labor, deliver and recover all in one room.
After a baby is born, they are observed and bathed in the mother's
room to promote bonding. From this point forward, the baby stays in the
mother's room throughout the hospital stay.
"Rooming-in" is required by the Nursing unit for the purpose
of infant care education and maternal/family bonding. Perinatal nurses
continually monitor mothers and babies during hospitalization. Newborns
return to the nursery only for lab tests and necessary medical care.
Infant hearing testing is conducted on all newborn babies. The Otoacoustic
Emissions Testing (OAE) provides physicians with information concerning
any possible hearing problems a newborn might have.
